Do you really need PS Plus to play Warzone?

You'll be pleased to know that PlayStation has been making efforts for quite some time to ensure that games marketed as "free-to-play" - like Warzone, Fortnite, and Rocket League - are all as free to play as possible.

This means that you do not need an active PS Plus membership to play Warzone. You'll need the console to play it on, of course, but you can download and play Warzone without a paid PS Plus subscription.

This only applies to Warzone, though - if we're talking about Call of Duty games. If you're looking to play Vanguard's multiplayer, you will need an active PS Plus membership.

You DO Need An Account Though

In order to "Purchase" Warzone and download it, you will need a PSN account and an internet connection.

Warzone is an exclusively online title and you will need a PSN account in order to add it to your game library and download the title to your PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5.

Luckily, this is really easy to do and PlayStation forces users to make/add a PSN Account to their console.

If you don't have one yet though, you can head to the PlayStation Network website and Create An Account here.
